    Hi, my school says I need one university with a lower entry requirement in the subjects of History, Archaeology or Anthropology. Does anyone know any universities because I've been searching for ages. Thank you!

    Nope, they're currently BBB but my school is making everyone do one lower university just in case something happens.

    im not sure if any of them do, but try non Russel group universities like:
    »Bucks New
    »Northumbria
    »Northampton
    »Worcester
    »Cumbria
    »Hull

    Basically, to find grades that low as entry requirements you need to look at Non Russel Group Universities, although, if you're predicted BBB then in reality you might only be given straight offers from Non Russel group (nothing wrong with this, theres some amazing non RG unis). Often RG unis have entry requirements of ABB+

    They can't 'make' you do that - it's your choice. And if they get obstructive, go along with their wishes and submit your Ucas application - then a couple of days later change your choices to what you really want.

    As per ageshallnot.

    It is normally a good idea to have 1 or 2 choices below your predicted level, but it's also worth bearing in mind that universities offering BBB are pretty likely to accept BCC anyway on Results Day. And if not there's always Clearing anyway.
